Welcome To Mexico

My name is Mario Laguna and on behalf of my Concierge team it is our pleasure to give you the warmest welcome to the Presidente InterContinental Mexico City. We are committed to help you make your stay in our city a truly memorable experience.

Presidente InterContinental Mexico City is an award-winning hotel in Polanco, one of the capital’s most dynamic cultural, business and shopping areas. This prestigious locale is close to the National Museum of Anthropology, Chapultepec Park and Castle and the National Auditorium. Nearby Mazarik Avenue and Pasaje Polanco shops are also worth seeing. Please let us help with any and all of you arrangements if you may.

LOCAL ESSENTIALS

LOCAL
RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

To make the most of your day, we recommend starting early having a delicious traditional Mexican breakfast at La Chimenea. Then head to the Anthropology Museum, walking distance from the Hotel, to get a better understanding of Mexican pre-Hispanic culture. You must not miss the Aztec, Mayan, and Toltec wings; as well as some of the most impressive pieces like the Aztec Calendar and the statue of Tlaloc. Hop on the tourbus for your next stop, Chapultepec Castle. Aside from admiring its elegant architecture, you cannot leave without taking a picture of the magnificent view from this building nestled at the top a hill. Head next to La Condesa, a very chic neighborhood with outdoor cafés and colorful parks where you can enjoy one of the many atmospheres our city has to offer.

AFTERNOON

Head next to the Historic Center, with a pit stop at the Angel of Independence square. Few people know that our city is actually sinking! Every 10 years a new one foot high step is added. You have several options for a truly memorable lunch, El Mayor (with a terrace overlooking the Templo Mayor Aztec ruins), El Majestic (overseeing the city's main square, the Zocalo, and the National Palace), or the Casa de Las Sirenas (where you can see the architecture of the Cathedral). Then stroll around the corners of the Historic Center, we recommend walking about Madero, Tacuba, and 5 de Mayo avenues. Here you will appreciate the different construction styles that are part of our almost 700 years as a city.

EVENING

Now I will send you off to Mexico's principal opera house, the Palace of Fine Arts. It's an architectural masterpiece, both inside and out. The interiors are a beautiful blend of art deco and art nouveau styles. The construction began in 1910, but was interrupted soon after by the revolution, and was finally completed 34 years later. It houses impressive murals and temporary exhibits. Finish the day with a performance by Amalia Hernandez's folklore ballet - one of the most famous ballets in the world - and you will be happy with your stay in our wonderful city.

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

Money

The government changes currency designs frequently Check the change given to you from vendors as some may try to give you out of date notes


Religion

Most Mexicans are devout Catholics and believers of the Virgin of Guadelupe. We recommend that you use discretion when discussing the subject.


Security

We advise against wearing jewellery in public or displaying large sums of money.


DID YOU KNOW ?

Amalia Hernandez Ballet

The Amalia Hernández ballet company has been showcasing the wide variety of Mexican folk dancing since 1959, and is enormously popular all around the world. You cannot miss their must-see show, running on Wednesdays and Sundays.


Cholula

150 km from Mexico City, the city of Cholula is home to the church of the Virgin of the Eternal Redemption. It affords spectacular views as it stands on top of the largest pyramid in the world. After the Conquest, the Spanish built churches such as this one over all the ancient sites. You can explore the temple's catacombs and see the surviving ancient murals.


Aztec Stadium

Host to two football World Cups, numerous performance artists and comfortably holding up to 105,000 people, the Aztec Stadium is an architectural marvel.


Metropolitan Cathedral

Dominating Mexico City's main square, the Cathedral of Mexico is an impressive sight. The oldest cathedral in the Americas that incorporates stones from nearby Aztec buildings. This majestic building has a Baroque style façade and 64 Neoclassical towers, holding 18 bells.


WHAT TO PACK

Electricity

Don't forget an adaptor because the plugs in Mexico differ to European and American versions. If you do forget, don't worry, we will happily provide you with a converter.


Food

Mexican food is very spicy and 'Moctezuma's revenge' is not uncommon for first-time visitors. We recommend you bring some medicine for stomach complaints with you, just in case.


Pesos

According to Mexican law, we cannot exchange currency at the Front Desk in the Hotel. However, we do have a money exchange office right across the street from the Hotel.
